yeah, the cure for salmon also good for sea trout. I quite often do a brandade but with a herb salt with coley end pieces (cheap and sustainable, yeah!)
one I did for Christmas last year was with molasses. Really worked. Just painted on before an 80/20 salt brown sugar cure
My go to is 2:1 salt to sugar in the raw with fennel pollen, coriander and dill. Cure for 48hr and cold smoke.

I use the basic salt/sugar cure but substitute shiso leaf for the dill. Much brighter flavor.
